Orig­i­nal mu­sic at KC’s

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

IR­ISH-born mu­si­cian John Lil­lis will be tak­ing to the stage at KC’s in Air­lie Beach tonight, to­mor­row and on March 24 and 25.

Hav­ing played gui­tar from the ten­der age of six, Lil­lis de­vel­oped a ca­reer as a song­writer and folk mu­si­cian – a path that took him on a jour­ney from Galway in Ire­land, to Sal­ford in the UK, to Mel­bourne in Aus­tralia and fi­nally to Air­lie Beach.

Like most song writ­ers, he says his songs are “all sto­ries from in­ci­dents and ob­ser­va­tions dur­ing my years play­ing and liv­ing around the world”.

De­scrib­ing him­self as a blues-driven rhyth­mic mu­si­cian, Lil­lis said he was look­ing for­ward to play­ing at KC’s.

He said it was good to have the chance to show­case more of his songs in a venue that sup­ported lo­cal song­writ­ers.
